One glance, and the cutting-edge sportbike styling of the GSX-8R immediately catches your eye. But it’s the sophisticated balance of power, handling, comfort and faithful response, and full control which draws you in. It’s a fine fusion of elements that invites all riders to a new world of riding pleasure, whether commuting or shopping in town, heading out for an exhilarating run through winding mountain roads, or testing your skills on the racetrack.
Features may include:
From the sharp, clean design of the front face and fairing, to the slim profile of its rear section, every detail of the GSX-8R’s mass-forward aggressive stance and well-balanced proportions instantly convey performance potential. Exposed parts such as the seat rails and engine parts are painted to highlight the mechanical appeal of functional beauty. And bold graphics that employ iconic typography create a presence that is instantly recognizable and equally appealing.
The 776cm3 parallel twin engine that powers the GSX-8R delivers a fine balance of smooth, controllable power and free-revving performance you will enjoy whether touring, enjoying a brisk ride, competing on the racetrack, or tackling errands around town.
Designed to be powerful, efficient, rider-friendly and versatile, the engine features a 270-degree crank layout with a firing order that produces rich torque and positive traction, as well as a pleasing rumble and engine note similar to that of a V-twin engine. It also employs the Suzuki Cross Balancer, an innovative primary balancer design that contributes to smooth operation and the GSX-8R’s nimble handling. The engine’s compact front-to-rear size contributes to achieving optimum weight distribution and chassis geometry, while it also helps position the hip point forward to provide you with an optimal riding position.
The GSX-8R features a short muffler design that, barely peeking out as it rises from the right side of the engine, contributes greatly to the mass-forward image of this new sportbike. It is part of a 2-into-1 exhaust system engineered to produce a pleasing note befitting the parallel twin engine. Better yet, the two-stage catalytic converter inside the collector helps limit emissions to a level that satisfies Euro 5 standards, while at the same time maximizing power output and overall performance.
The advanced electronic systems of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) featured on the GSX-8R assist and help you optimize performance characteristics to match your changing riding needs and preferences. By making the GSX-8R more controllable, predictable, and less tiring to operate, these systems help you ride with greater peace of mind, whether touring, carrying a passenger, or heading out for a sporty solo run.
This cable-free system leverages the onboard ECM to finely control the relationship between throttle action and engine output characteristics. As a result, linear feedback to throttle grip action makes the GSX-8R feel controllable and helps promote more confident riding.
